I am a BSc Hons biotechnology student with a focus in genetics. I am currently carrying out my Hons research project under the supervision of Prof Tuan Duong at FABI. My project aims to develop a recyclable selection marker system for the sequential transformation of Ceratocystis fimbriata and related species using the URA3/pyrG gene in combination with the CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing technology. Having such a system will allow us to decipher the functions of genes involved in various biological processes in these fungi.
